Studies from an Ivy league school’s graduates have shown that there is a direct correlation between the highest earners and doing this one simple thing daily.  It can actually apply to just about every part of your life whether it is family, relationships, career/financial, health, hobbies, etc.  You will be amazed by the results and what you can achieve.

Write Down and Track Your Goals

The one thing I recommend to everyone is to write down your goals every day.  I cannot stress enough how much of a positive impact it will have on your life.  Challenges are no longer stressful, they become a goal and just something you work towards everyday in your life. 

Here is a bit more detail.

  1. Write down your goals everyday
  2. Write what it will take to achieve them
  3. Begin completing these tasks
  4. Start over at 1 everyday

Do this everyday and you will be amazed how productive, efficient and effective you become.  Whether it is career, real estate, and financial goals; family and relationship goals; or fitness and hobby goals, you will become organized and unstoppable if you truly commit.

    Setting and defining goals are definitely important tasks for people. It seems that while the link in the article points to evidence that the Ivy League studies were actually bunk, the follow up study to prove it seems to have done just that. Are you talking about making task lists for the day here, though? It seems that daily goal setting could be rather difficult. I see a discrepancy between goals and tasks.

    Thanks for the comment Dave, the studies I am referring to are from one of my most influential books Goals by Brian Tracy. There it explains in a Ivy league study that there was a direct correlation between the people who wrote down daily goals and the top income earners. I began writing down goals daily and completing the 4 steps and it has been amazing what I have achieved. I am now organized, focused and ready for the next challenge. The tasks are a list of the items it will take to achieve the goals. Writing down goals is great, but you must also write down what it takes to achieve the goals and begin doing.
